Lili's Little Fairies (GDT4) Favourite Craft Tool

Well, it is week four of my GDT slot with LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES and my final outing as an Extra Fairy.  Sob.

This week's challenge is "Favourite Craft Tool" - blimey, a toughie - what do I use the most? My guillotine?  My Bug? Oh yes, all of those, but my current Favourite Craft Tool is my Ranger Inkssentials Blending Tool (as you may have noticed recently).  I am inking everything in sight, and for this GDT card, there is no change to that!

I would like to take this chance to say a big thank you to Jacqui and the Fairies for having me on board for the past four weeks. I have had a blast, and it has been such a privilege and, in all probability, a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I would also like to say a very special thank you to Fairy Jayne for taking me under her wing and sprinkling me with fairy dust, and to say thank you to her for her tireless support and kindness.  Jayne, you are a poppet and one heck of a clever crafter!

Here is my card:


Ingredients:
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Melissa Frances Attic Treasures
Sentiment  Lili Of The Valley (came with stamp)
Extras  Three gallons of Distress Ink around the edges, plus Craftwork Cards Card Candi

So, that's me signing off, a Fairy no longer
Hugs
Sxx

This is such a fabulous card Squirrel. I love this image and the papers are stunning. All round fabulous! Let me tell ya, my daily visit to your blog sets me up for the day! I have never laughed as much in my life. I have learned much about colouring with distress inks and even more about the (slightly disturbed) life lessons of the Squirrel. Your e-mails kill me too. It's been a blast - perhaps Mummy Fairy will let us do it all again sometime! Be good Mavis, hugs Jayne xx

THREE GALLONS of distress ink? I can see I'll need to invest in some more before I ever use any. I had to google the Ranger Inkssentials Blending Tool to see what it was. Oh! Now I know! Actually I knew before but didn't know I knew. 8-)

Stunning card hun, and love the colours. Can't believe its 4 weeks since you became a guest fairy, but to me, you will always be a fairy, bringing your magic into my life! xxxx
